Stick to a Theme

Day of the Dead Ultimate Party Kit

Sticking to a theme makes Halloween party shopping super quick and easy, you can search specifically for the theme your looking for like Day of the Dead or Ghoulish Ghosts without having to trawl through lots and lots of Halloween supplies!


Gingerray Halloween Bunting

Opt for decorations that have a great impact but don’t require lots of assembly. Bunting and garlands are perfect for this as you simply have to drape them throughout your chosen party room! If you’re not too short on time you could have a go at making your own garlands by threading spooky fans together with ribbon or string.


Day of the Dead Masks


If you haven’t yet bought your fancy dress costume there’s no need to worry! The internet is full of amazing ideas for last minute DIY fancy dress costumes. Our jazzy sugar skull masks are free to print and make for a quick and easy Halloween costume, just team them with a stylish black outfit or a fiesta of colour, a big floral headband and some spooky skull make-up.

Stick to foods that require little or no baking/cooking! This super-cute pumpkin is actually an olive cheese dip, it’s only made from 5 ingredients and takes 5 minutes to make – perfect! A finger food buffet is perfect for Halloween parties and is so easy to set up, the supermarkets are chock full of Halloween takes on party food so make sure you stock up! Another quick and easy treat for Halloween is a mummified pizza, instead of adding grated cheese lay strips of different coloured cheeses across the pizza to look like bandages. Don’t forget the olive eyes too!

We hope this gears you up for some spook-tastic Halloween celebrations! Happy Halloween!
